About 911 Addressing
The Importance of Your 911 Address

Imagine looking for an address at night with no streetlights. Now, imagine a medical emergency, a sick or hurt child that needs help immediately. A house fire, burglary, or broken bone. There are many types of emergencies and we pray that you will never need emergency services.
Emergencies happen every day and when they do, are you prepared?
The first step is to make sure that the emergency personnel can find your home.

Please make sure your house is properly marked. Every second saved does count.

If you can’t see the house from the road, make sure the mailbox is marked
The address should be visible from the road
If the mailbox is not close to your driveway, mark the driveway
The numbers can also be a guide for emergency services to another address needing help

House numbers should be large enough to be seen from the road, at least 4 inches in height
House numbers should be on a background of contrasting color
When a house is some distance from the road, or when the view is blocked by trees or shrubs, display the numbers on a fence, gate, or a post close to the road
On a corner lot, the number should face the street named in the address
The numbers should be reflective or illuminated

The driveway should be marked

The life saved may not be your own, but may be your neighbors.
